Café Rouge is a French restaurant popular all over London and lucky for you one of them is parked
right in St. Albans! Open Monday – Friday from 10am and Saturday and Sunday from 9am, the restaurant has the perfect breakfast menu to cure your uni scrambled brains. Everything on the menu is under £8 so just in case you spent (a bit) more than intended last night, you can still afford to eat. There are pastries, pancakes, fruit, sandwiches, and your more ‘traditional’ bulky breakfasts. Coffee and tea, fresh juice or two cheeky breakfast cocktails to choose from – and the best thing about it? FREE WIFI. Check out the menu online at:
